Forgiveness – Starting Over, 01-14-05

by LauraBelle Here’s a little riddle for you. What is something all of us expect, but have a hard time giving out? Forgiveness. Everyone in the Starting Over house either needs to forgive someone else or forgive themselves. In Group with Rhonda, Denise is delighted to find she has been given two steps toward her goal of “Clean Up Life.” However, another step has been added – Forgiveness, giving her three more steps to complete to reach her goal. Rhonda goes around the room, asking [...]

Ray, We Salute You: Queer Eye For The Straight Guy Episode 3.1

Ray, We Salute You The Fab Five start out their third season with a salute to the troops. More specifically, they “make-over” Ray, a soldier preparing to go to Iraq for about two years, leaving his wife, Maria, and daughter, Sabrina, behind. So this isn’t your typical happy-go-lucky show, although it does have its funny moments. The guys have already made over a military man and a police officer with lots of laughs. This time, it’s more sentimental for them all. You’ll see. Thom, Ted, [...]

Hurry, Rebekah! Date!: Queer Eye For The Straight Girl Episode 1.-1 (Sneak Peek)

Hurry, Rebekah! Date! The Gal Pals pile into the SUV for a Special Sneak Peek make-over! Yes, this recap is out of order because the first episode comes first, dammit. So, for a more in-depth description of the Gal Pals, you can check out “Nicole H (and the H stands for Hotness!).” But just as a refresher (and this is the last time I’m doing this because after three episodes, we should know who everyone is without word-picture flashcards): The Look: Robbie Laughlin. The epitome [...]

Wickedly Perfect Episode #2 – Battle for the Better Dinner Party

by Heather The search for America’s next great style maker continues in episode two of the CBS reality show “Wickedly Perfect”. The field of 12 domestic diva wannabees was whittled down again Thursday night. Now just ten are in the running for the grand prize including a book deal, six scheduled appearances on The Early Show, and a possible television show. The program opens at the sprawling Connecticut estate on day 4 of the competition. 32-year-old Georgia peach, Kimberly, says she’s glad she made it [...]

Feel Like A Woman – Starting Over, 01-13-05

by LauraBelle Sometimes I wonder if casting and the producers of Starting Over have their meetings laughing their butts off and high-fiving each other with the way they pair roommates up. Yesterday they paired up amnesiac Bethany with Renee, who would give anything to forget some of her childhood and adulthood memories. Today they pair up Denise with someone that is so diabolically different, they had to be laughing in that meeting. The second new roommate in two days arrives, and is rushed into group [...]

Who Am I – Starting Over, 01-12-05

by LauraBelle It is always difficult for a new person to walk into an existing group of people. The four remaining women on Starting Over have a tight bond, especially after the difficult dismissal of Sommer. This seems to have pulled them all closer. They all wondered at the beginning of the show who it would be to be added to their tight clan. Cassie thought for sure it would be someone that would be very different from her, noting that the show always seems [...]

The Road to Stardom With Missy Elliott Episode 2

Sara is first, and she starts by saying that “she’s never done brainstorming in a bathroom.” She then proceeds to talk about how she founded Spanx, her company, and about how she wants [...]

The Process of Healing – Starting Over, 01-11-05

by LauraBelle Today’s Starting Over was based around a group discussion of grief, but I think of it more as healing, that process of healing after a loss. There are only four women left in the house right now, after Towanda’s graduation and Sommer’s dismissal, and all of them have a great deal of healing left to do. Denise has a lot of healing to do over her abusive childhood. She realized in her day of isolation the day before that she was holding in [...]
